Emerald Waterways has enhanced its luxury yacht programme by adding a new itinerary to the northern Dalmatia region for 2020. Aside from the spectacular island-speckled coastline and appeal of UNESCO World Heritage-listed towns, the new itinerary is packed with enriching excursions and inspirational tours accompanied by expert guides. From a cake-tasting session of Rapska torta and traditional Klapa acapella performance, the new eight-day ‘Pearls of North Dalmatia’ sailing allows guests to delve deep into local Croatian culture. Those keen to extend their cruises further around the Croatian archipelago can choose between the ‘four days in Zagreb’ or the eight-day ‘Discover Croatia’ tours.


As part of the expanded programme, Emerald Waterways is to exclusively charter two new luxury yachts – the MS Swallow and the brand new MS Lastavica, which is set for its inaugural season in 2020. To capitalise on demand, a new itinerary – ‘The Pearls of North Dalmatia’ - has its first departure on 18 April 2020.

Each 18-cabin vessel is luxuriously appointed to ensure travellers can sail the Adriatic coast in style, exploring some of Europe’s most picturesque harbours and historic destinations. The two yachts each cater for a maximum of 36 holidaymakers, with modern en-suite cabins, a rooftop Jacuzzi, sun deck, VIP saloon and a specially-designed swimming platform to encourage dips into the crystal-clear waters. They also incorporate a spacious outside and inside restaurant to help guests take full advantage of the warm climate.


To celebrate the launch of Emerald Waterways’ two new luxury yachts and brand new itinerary, travellers can save up to £500 per person if booking before 31 March. The price includes return flights from London or Manchester, transfers, seven nights in a luxury cabin, meals and selected drinks onboard, shore excursions and onboard events and experiences, all tipping and gratuities and complimentary Wi-Fi.
